Default London to Brighton.

There was a piece on the One Show about the L2B that took place over the
weekend. The centre piece for the program was a de Dion that did the
trip at an average speed of 10mph.

More of a road block than cyclists then. How much road tax was paid on
this vehicle? Apparently there was a fault and the brake only worked on
one wheel. Now, where have we heard of something like this elsewhere?

I saw something in the report about a Time Trial being part of the event.
I wonder what the usual suspects will have to say about this race on the public highway.

I was once out walking in Yorkshire and all of these VED exempt cars came by.
Seems to be a regular event as well.

The Route

QUOTE:
The 10th Flying Scotsman will be flagged away from the Brooklands Museum shortly after midday on Thursday 26 April. A relaxed run through the Home Counties provides a gentle introduction, allowing crews to slowly build a head of steam for the days ahead.

Day two sees the route head north into the East Midlands to take in some exciting new challenges before swinging east through the quiet yet magnificent Lincolnshire Wolds.

After a comfortable night halt close to the majestic Humber Bridge, the gradients increase through Saturday, as the spectacular moors and dales of Yorkshire welcome us.

On day four, our special Anniversary Edition rounds off with a shorter day of splendid moorland motoring through the wilds of Northumberland and the Scottish Borders before a triumphal arrival at the Balmoral Hotel in the heart of Edinburgh, appropriately close to Waverley Railway Station, the original destination of our illustrious steam powered namesake.

ENDS QUOTE.
